As from March 1st 2018, the Bosch Security Systems division will be known as Bosch Building Technologies.
“We want the scope of our portfolio to be reflected better in our name as well,” says Gert van Iperen, president of the Bosch Security Systems division. The division comprises two organisationally discrete units, the global product business and the regional system integration services business.
The product business – to be known in the future as Bosch Security and Safety Systems – will continue to operate as a supplier of video, intrusion, fire alarm, and voice alarm systems, as well as of access control systems and management software, all under the Bosch brand. Its portfolio also includes professional audio and conference systems for the transmission of voice, sound, and music. The products are distributed exclusively to system integrators or through wholesale dealers.
This step will not affect the names of the division’s legal entities.
In this product business, Bosch Security Systems will merge its video systems, intrusion detection, as well as its access control and management software business units to form a single business unit, known as Security. The company states that in making this move it is responding to the growing demand for sector-specific, integrated security solutions.
“In combining these three business units, our aim is to ensure we can meet our customers’ needs even better in the future. In the years ahead, we want to actively shape the process of transformation brought about by the internet of things, as well as to focus more on connectivity, integrated solutions, and services. At the same time, this move will strengthen our competitiveness,” says Gert van Iperen.
